Letter from Leadership
Dear Community Members:
On behalf of the Board of Directors and staff, we are pleased to welcome you to the new and improved website of the Community Partnership for the Prevention of Homelessness. We have created a more navigable website with additional resources, better tools, and a new visual design to support our partners and clients, as well as to present more accurate, up to date information to the public.
Since 1989, the Community Partnership has worked to treat and prevent homelessness in Washington, DC. TCP has become one of the country’s most successful Continuum of Care managers, and is a respected steward of more than $80 million annually of federal and local government funds. The Community Partnership has been honored several times by HUD for our strong data collection and as a “National Best Practice Model” by the National Alliance to End Homelessness for our work to keep families from falling into homelessness.
We hope that this website will be a resource for individuals and families who seek help, our providers who serve the homeless population, landlords who are interested in housing individuals and families, as well as those seeking statistical information about the homeless population in Washington, DC. Thank you for visiting our site!
TCP will remain a trusted partner to both government and homeless service providers and will ensure quality services to our city’s neediest residents.
